• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

WBY432 (PORT OF PORTLAND) FCC Callsign Details

Browsing the FCC licenses for Clatsop County, I came across this interesting listing for the Port of Portland. It shows as being in Multnomah, Clackamas, Columbia, Clatsop, and Clark Counties.

458.750 FX1T w/132 watts and 3 Mob

Curious if anyone knows what this is used for? I'm guessing something to do with commercial shipping or maybe tracking ships, since the counties listed are all along the Columbia River.

That link is to the RR database that has limited info. If you're really curious, search the FCC database. You will find the name, phone number and e-mail address of the project manager who applied for that license. Since it expires in February, it won't matter much.
